Scouted: Manchester United Send Staff To Watch Leeds United Defender

Manchester United have sent scouts to keep a close eye on Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor in recent weeks, according to reports in the Daily Star.

The reports, which may have been triggered slightly more news worthy after Luke Shaw’s double leg fracture during the week, have surfaced that United are indeed looking at Charlie Taylor, 21, who is currently playing his trade down at former rivals Leeds United.

The Star are reporting that Louis van Gaal had sent the clubs leading scouts over to watch the defender a few times now, and after being impressed with what they have seen, have place his name firmly on a list to look at incoming during the January transfer window.

One name we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on here at United Ramble.
